The gathering of conservatives, particularly on April 15 2009, to protest "wasteful government spending" aka "allowing tax money to go to anyone who isn't white, male, and protestant or lives in a house ran by one."
Common misconceptions of participators (teabagers) is that they are protesting taxation without representation. In actuality, they are whining about paying taxes and allowing the money to go where it always has (supporting America). And taxpayers are represented by those they elect into the House of Representatives, Senate, and the White House.
Nope, let them eat cake, and we'll through a tea party.
What!? My tax dollars are going to an under privileged school?
Nope, no education for those poor bastards on my money. Tea party.
What!? My rich, white, protestant ass is paying more taxes than those poor niggers, spics, and homos!?
Fuck them, tea party time.
2. Unknowing puppets of capitalist corporations and their congressional silent partners used to derail any progressive movement in the US government and/or society.
Naive dreamers who think that capitalism is some kind of romantic exchange of goods between the farmer John Wayne and the horse breeder Gary Cooper, and the dominion of monopole corporations and banks is "socialism".
Hate-filled hyprocrites who call everyone Hitler!Hitler!Hitler! but when YOU only call them "right wing" they are screaming about "political correctness gone wild" and that they are just "concerned" citizens, looking for freedom.
Allegedly they don't want government involved with your everyday life - except when it comes to gay marriage (FORBID IT!) and all the other things that make baby Jesus cry.
Teabaggers: You want America to become islamic!
Normal Person: No, I...
Teabagger: Why do you hate America so much?
Normal Person? What? I don't hate...
Teabagger: And why don't you think of the children!? Think of the children!
Normal Person: The children!? Gosh, what's wrong with you guys!?
Teabagger: Well, well, Herr Hitler asks what's "wrong" with us! I guess you want to put everyone in a concetration camp who asks the "wrong" questions, hm?
Normal Person: Jesus Christ, you're fucking crazy.
Teabagger: See! Everyone who asks the "wrong" questions is "crazy" and has to be put in a gulag! Come on, kid, why do you hate freedom so much? Why don't you defend the freedom of speech!?
Normal speech: I defend the freedom of speech! I defend my right to call the Tea Party a bunch of lunatic crypto-fascist hypocrites who would deserve to get crippled in one of your stupid, unnecessary wars, to live on the street afterwards and then to work as a loo attendant for 1$ a week at the millionaire's villa of one of your stupid teaparty moms, who claims to defend the little guy against the "liberal elite".
Today, a wing of the Republican party dedicated to getting Obama out of office, while conveniently living in denial about the abuses of the Bush years and the Wall Street origins of the Great Recession (2007-present). For instance, the tea party has no problem w/ the glut of cheap imports flooding Walmarts across the fruited plain or the debasement of wages globally that result from it. The tea party actually opposes living wages and organized labor, while having no problems w/ white collar fraud.
The modern tea party twerps piss me off. Do they even know what the Boston Tea Party was about? It was a foreign country taxing us on imported tea. Who wanted NAFTA and WTO in the 1st place? Who voted for total banking deregulation? Did the Founding Fathers come to America to have the church tell them what to do? I know the desire to tease gays must be irresistable, but THINK!
joe dirt: heck yea deey tuk urr jerrrbs!!!!
